GRAPHIC: You will have two png silhouette graphics which you MUST use on the cover (Slim Cave Woman & Modern Fat Woman.) Their position, and the story that you will be creating through the use of them, are entirely up to you.
Still, if you DO have an idea which will require adding another graphic element of your own to the ones that we provide you with, and you strongly think that it will help our concept to be better represented, by all means do that. We hope for a lot of creative ideas. But please be aware that we are NOT LOOKING for : random stock photos, measuring tapes, forks, knives, flowers, scales, random food items (like apples), or any other elements which will not be related to our philosophy, or that might look like clichées used on common diet books.
The winning design will be weighted towards FONT choice and TEXT PLACEMENT in relation to the images.
TYPE FONTS: we are looking for professional looking use of fonts (nothing excessively "girly" please). You can also have text effects if you wish, but if you do so, please make sure they won’t actually ruin the font itself, by achieving a cheap overall look (examples: heavy shadows, too thick outlines, not enough contrast, too narrow or too high letters etc.)
You may use FREE or PROPRIETARY fonts. Please provide links/names of fonts with submissions.
BACK COVER: All instructions will be provided to the finalists.
There will be two members of our team moderating the contest, Dr. Theresa, one of the authors, and Nelly, one of our graphic designers. Therefore, we will be very active, and we will also be able to give you specific instructions for your designs and ideas.
Looking forward to your creativity!
